Why is He on the Street?
- Just one day after attending a meeting to reintroduce felons into their communities, a recent parolee with a decades-long rap sheet and history of violence stabbed an Oak Brook doctor during an attempted holdup at a Gold Coast restaurant over the weekend, authorities said Monday.
Jimmy Harris, 56, had been freed from prison just eight days earlier, authorities said.
Harris, who has past gang ties, has at least 60 arrests and nine felony convictions dating to the late 1970s, according to Chicago police, state and court records.
56 years old, nine felony convictions and he still manages to walk the streets, breathing the same air you and we do, stabbing suburban tourists and such.
Maybe this is just a case of "ten strikes and you're out."
